I like chocolate teas, a lot, and I love almond and amaretto anything, so assuming I’m at least partially ok with coconut, it stands to reason that this is a tea I should like. Well folks reason doesn’t fail me.

I the sample pouch from shmiracles I got recently, it smells like chocolatey almondy divinity. Brewed it is a bit more subdued, but still there. I do have it sweetened with a small amount of sugar, but no milk, since I’m out…but this was one I had a feeling would be ok without, but probably amazing with (luckily, I have more of the sample).

If we end up doing a Della Terra co-op order, this is one I will consider adding. It’s pretty good.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
